"The Revenge" is a smooth-enough entertainment that should appeal to Wallander completists and aficionados of the cresting wave of Scandinavian crime stories.

"The Revenge" is well-made, above-average TV, but it seems small for the big screen. The plot is a bit predictable, and we're still getting to know the characters when the story ends.

Given that Henriksson is in his 20th hour of playing Wallander onscreen, it's no surprise that his performance has a well-worn ease; like the character himself, he seems to have been doing this his whole life.

On the whole this is a routine mystery tale existing mainly to introduce new characters to the Wallander universe and allow for future installments.

An old-fashioned, taut, well-crafted thriller-complete with several wonderful twists.

Suffers from its small-screen origins.

Here is one of the year's best and most provocative thrillers and maybe it says something that it's a 91-minute installment of a Swedish TV series.
